UK’s best price and quality
paperback

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

Photography zines

I created a photography zine and was a complete novice when it came to getting it into print. I emailed the team with some questions and they were extremely helpful all round. When my zines eventually arrived the quality and finish was amazing. It really made my work sing. I highly recommend.
Feature packed website!

I had A5 comics printed

I had A5 comics printed, I found Mixam had the best price for the small quantity I wanted and had ordered from there before. I had a few minor issues with the print but the resolutions team were very understanding and worked closely with me to get these sorted. I am very thankful for their help :) The resolutions team were great that I would give it 5 stars for them alone! But since other issues were involved 4 stars is a bit more honest for the overall experience.

It was my first time ordering with Mixam and it was great. Having placed my order I received feedback and advice from Lucien who helped me to complete and edit my order to the correct format. The final prints are exactly what I expected and even better.

Really easy, user friendly site. The live quote was incredibly useful, and my order was delivered a few days before the projected date (which I was already very impressed by!). Will definitely be using Mixam in the future.

I'm a fussy customer and Mixam did a brilliant job. Great communication, speedy delivery and gorgeous quality. I couldn't be happier.
Fast and good results. Expensive shipping

Very fast production, very good results, good customer service. Should work on cheaper shipping solutions, as the rate of shipping was more than half the cost of my (small scale) order (shipping to Norway).
Excellent responsive service. Great product

Designed and ordered some notebooks from Mixam. Because I didn't see an email on time, it looked like they weren't going to be ready in time for my event. The person I spoke with on the phone was so helpful and accommodating explained everything and together we came up with a solution to ensure the parcel arrived on time. The finished notebooks also looked great.

Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
You can supply your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
